~Thanks (Support Persons and Personnel) for reading my inquiry !
(and hopefully you can help bring my nightmare to an end... Thanks !)
Since I am using my Sister's former Toshiba Laptop, (she passed in 2011) I wrongfully assumed that it was configured for setting restore points. Not the case... none were ever set.
TROUBLE WAS, installed a Blue Tooth Driver, for an Insignia BT Adapter, and despite installing ok, and that it recognized and paired with my devices (2) it never communicated any sound through the BT Devices. (I used a Broadcom BCM 20702A0 which is noted in some troubleshooting reports as btrez.dll )
I removed the driver from within Device Manager. (Emsisoft's Tech said shouldn't have done that).
>> Laptop went into SPIN CYCLE, folders on my desktop began dissappearing....
I thought a major virus or spyware or other attack, I shut down the system immediately... it has never rebooted even in safe mode, or after running any "fix" of any sort from any angle.
CANNOT EVER BOOT IN SAFE MODE, BSOD. I MUST USE RECOVERY CD, GO TO COMMAND PROMPT. HAVE RUN ALL THE FIXES FROM THE RECOVERY CD UTILITY LIST, NO FIX DESPITE ALL THE "CONFIRMATIONS" FR MicroSoft's response when utility completes.
EVEN BOUGHT AND TRIED THE EasyRE Windows Repair DVD, It said it fixed the problem, but alas, it did not fix anything.
I am using Win7 recovery CD to get to a command prompt. (only access path at this time)
All the usual fixes haven't worked (at least 15 hrs in the weeds here, even w Emsisoft's great help).
After trying diligently, reading - trying many solutions listed here, and by the graces of one of Emsisoft's Key Troubleshooters (alas this Topic Title upon his recommendation)
HE REFFERED ME TO POST THIS TROUBLE TOPIC HERE FOR YOUR GRACIOUS ANALYSIS AND REFLECTIONS....
AFTER RUNNING FARBAR FRST, And noting some issues, the Emsisoft Tech had me run
sfc /scannow /offbootdir=D:\ /offwindir=D:\Windows
AFTER RUNNING sfc /scannow /offbootdir=D:\ /offwindir=D:\Windows
"WINDOWS RESOURCE PROTECTION COULD NOT PERFORM THE REQUESTED OPERATION"
WE WERE TRYING TO LOCATE AND REPAIR TDI.SYS as it had shown up in error reports as the possible culprit...
HE WAS AND I AM STUCK AT THIS POINT "CANNOT PERFORM REQUESTED OPERATION"
HIS LAST THOUGHT WAS:
"you're stuck analyzing CBS.log. The only trouble is finding it - using those commands (offbootdir, etc.) I think it will put it in D:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log, but I'm not positive. Alternatively, creating the FRST log I'd mentioned (defaults, not changing any checkboxes), and hoping the driver issue is apparent."
REALIZING THIS IS MY FIRST POST, AND ALOT HAS BEEN COVERED IN A BRIEF PERIOD OF TIME, I WILL LEAVE THIS STATUS AT THIS POINT FOR ANYONE'S REFLECTION AND COMMENTS. AGAIN, Thanks Ever So Much !!
